CRES Forum joins EDP Renewables North America, one of the U.S.’s top five renewable energy operators, in celebrating the commencement of a new wind farm opening in Alberta, Canada.
Thanks to the partnership between EDP Renewables and TC Energy, the new facility–Sharp Hills Wind Farm–is officially operational and has already created more than 400 jobs. The energy generated at Sharp Hills will support local businesses from restaurants to gas stations, hotels, shops and service providers, and will infuse millions of dollars in funding to local communities enhancing funding for schools, emergency services and infrastructure.
“I’m extremely proud of this milestone, as it marks the largest single-phase wind farm developed by EDP Renewables to date in North America,” stated EDP Renewables North America CEO Sandhya Ganapathy.
In 2023, EDP Renewables Vice President of Government & Public Affairs Tom Starrs participated in a panel discussion during National Clean Energy Week to highlight the important role clean energy tax credits play in the deployment of new renewable technologies. Click HERE to watch the panel.
